Time Matching - Charities Aid Foundation (CAF)
Many firms have time-matching schemes available for charity work. Last year, only two parents signed up to this scheme but the contribution was big; they raised over £2k!
One parent said: “My firm will time-match any hours I spend doing voluntary work for St John’s so hours I spent volunteering for the PSA or helping out at school fairs, I was able to claim time matching from my company that was paid directly to the PSA. Also my firm gives me 15 hours volunteer leave per year.”
Please investigate what schemes that your employer may offer and see if you can contribute this way. The PSA’s charity number is 1128405.
